Previous to moving to LA in 2010 I was a 15 year career man working the hustled pace of NYC on 59th & 3rd. Now an LA’n (I revel in the similarities in sound of the word ‘alien’ vs. ‘LA’n’… I’m a proud LA’n. ; ) now in LA, the pace of life much slower, I realize a natural ability with dogs. I have become the dog walker of Palms Los Angeles.
Walking my own dogs regularly, I was recognized. Word of mouth and my reputation resulted in my walking LOTS of dogs over the last few years. :) I have an evolving key chain of client house keys.
Imagine, folks trusting me, with keys to their homes…
Ha ha ha… (evil laughter) ;)
Calm and Assertive are keys to being a pack leader.
Welcome to the Pack.
LOOK! There's more below. Scroll down...
Recently our Palms neighborhood council along with city councilman Paul Koretz have encouraged local artists to apply to them with a design concept for decorating the communities utility boxes. I walk dogs by the corner of Motor & Regent 3 or 4 times a day, I was inspired.
I submitted a design and to my surprise I was elected! LOL! An artist? me? Ha! Never have I ever considered myself talented in drawing and painting. Alas, my inspiration drew me in (appreciate the pun please ; ).
My process of painting, was slow. I took my time. Never have I done such a thing, so slow I go. I learned that I can. No matter the fear, I can when my heart sings so. So, I did. And here it is. I didn't originally intend the message. Note my hand drawn diagram. Evolution happens when we walk beyond what strikes us as fearful. A theme came to view, 'Community Respect'. Dig that. :-)
Thank you for looking. Thank you for reading.
